The Latest Bill

According to CNN:

The Defense Department provided these figures:

• 791 troops were wounded or injured during combat
• 253 troops were wounded or injured in action not related to combat operations, such as traffic accidents or accidental gunshot wounds
According to Pentagon numbers, between May 1 and Tuesday, 73 U.S. troops have been killed in Iraq.

• 29 by hostile fire around Iraq
• 44 troops from non-hostile fire or in accidents

Since the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom, 211 U.S. troops have been killed in Iraq.

• 143 troops by hostile fire
• 68 troops by accidents or other non-hostile incidents

As for the dollar cost of the Iraqi war and occupation, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told a Senate committee Wednesday that it is projected to cost the Pentagon an average of nearly $4 billion a month through September.

1044 US wounded, at least 211 killed. Plus several thousand dead Iraqis, and several dozen dead UK soldiers. $240-480 billion over a 5-10 year occupation. That's some very expensive nonexistent yellowcake. Glad George is "absolutely confident" about his butcher bill--he'll answer for it someday.
